Photos: The best and worst of summer fashion

Decrease fontDecrease font

A number of players have debuted some fresh looks for the summer hard-court tournaments. Andy Murray has shed his skin-tight Adidas T-shirts for a more casual look, Milos Raonic is wearing his heart on his chest and, somehow, Rafael Nadal’s shorts have gotten shorter.

Here are some of the best and worst summer kits that debuted over the last two weeks.

Hits

Andy Murray

Andy Murray: Gone are the slim-fit shirts that he wore since last year’s World Tour Finals, which did a great job of showing off his pecs but probably weren’t flying off the shelf with the weekend warrior set. (Matthew Stockman/Getty Images)

Genie Bouchard

Eugenie Bouchard: The 19-year-old Canadian looked great in this Nike kit, which Madison Keys debuted two weeks ago at the Bank of the West Classic. The skirt has a nice “poof” to it, too. Is that a fashion term? It is now.  (Andy Lyons/Getty Images)

Milos Raonic

Milos Raonic: These shirts, emblazoned with the maple leaf, flew off the shelf when Canada hosted its Davis Cup tie earlier this year, and Raonic decided to rock it at his home tournament, the Rogers Cup, this week. In case you’re asking, this doesn’t violate the tour’s rules regarding sponsor logos, because it’s considered part of the shirt’s design.  (Matthew Stockman/Getty Images)

Venus Williams

Rafael Nadal

Victoria Azarenka

Victoria Azarenka: Azarenka pulled out of Toronto with a lower-back injury, but she debuted this new Nike outfit last week at the Southern California Open. The shift top looks pretty comfortable, to Nike’s credit, but it looks awkward on Azarenka. (Joe Scarnici/Getty Images)

Ana Ivanovic

Ana Ivanovic: The dress is standard Adidas fare, but in the heat and humidity of summer, the dark colors make the dress look hot. And not in a Paris Hilton kind of way. (Andy Lyons/Getty Images)

    Are you nuts?  Anything that show more of Rafa's beautiful body is NOT a miss!  The longer looser shorts the other male players are sporting are so last year

    My Agrees:

    Venus dresses great.   Also I am a guy and tried out an EleVen shirt this summer and will be buying more.

    Bouchard is gorgeous.

    You didn't even say who makes Raonic's shirt.   (New Balance, I think.)   Looks good on him.

    My Disagrees:

    That little collar on Li Na is nice and well within her fashion range.

    Rafa has every right to show off his quads.   Bring back short shorts!

    Vika looks fine in her "tough girl" shirt.  She'll never be a fashion star, let her racquet do the talking.

    Ana looks great.   Remember some of her sweat spots when she was younger?   This kit does much better to let her focus on her play.   Good lord she's gorgeous.

    Who could possibly be anti-short-shorts on Rafa????? He's got the best legs on tour.

    @mbell33 Absolutely agree. I'll take it a step further &  wish he would go sleeveless again!

    In fact, I don't understand why ALL the guys don't go sleeveless. With a few exceptions, they are constantly tugging at the shoulders of their shirts! I just want to run out there & yank off the sleeves for them! LOL
